Bangladesh has achieved remarkable success in combating money laundering and terror financing, with improving its position by five points, according to a global index of a Switzerland-based organisation.

According to the index, Hayti, Chad, Myanmar and Congo are the most risky countries when Iceland is the least risky country for money laundering and terror financing.
